FaceVault. iPhone. $.99. iPhone users jealous of Android users who have been using facial recognition apps to unlock their phones can now rejoice. FaceVault brings facial recognition technology to iOS. The app uses biometric facial recognition to identify the phone owner. You can choose between FaceRecognition or Pattern (backup unlocking method for low-light situations). There is a Login archive that tells you when the app had a break-in attempt. You can lock photos and albums using the app. The app uses multitouch control for Zoom, Swipe, Rotate. You also can take private photos from within the app, as well as Import and export photos from or to Camera Roll or share via email. The developer does caution that facial recognition is less secure than a pattern lock and that someone who looks similar to you could unlock the app. The app also requires an active internet connection to perform recognition and location services must be turned on in order for the app to access the Camera Roll. And from the reviews, it looks like the results are mixed. Nonetheless, facial recognition technology is pretty cool and as this app updates, I expect it will only improve. If you want to witness the future now, check out FaceVault.
